The second edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday took place on the 11th of May. On this glorious occasion, five new pitchers took the centre stage to pitch products they’ve been working.
We proceeded with main activities at exactly 5 PM with Adeniran Oye Ladun opening up the pitching session. Adeniran pitched Hansei, a working prototype of an electronic device that amplifies music sound for good quality listening.

The next person that took to the centre stage was Charles Okala. He pitched a startup that seems more like an Airbnb, albeit with a local twist to it. Cheffon.com, as he calls it, is a platform that lets locals host their extra home spaces or apartments to local and international guests, to save money and discover new experiences.
Kelvin Umechukwu was quickly called upon, and he dazzled us with the possibility of Salescabal.com, a platform that provides small and medium enterprises with the technology tools and requisite resources needed to scale at an affordable and flexible monthly cost.
Once Kelvin was done, Tijani Sadiq came to pitch Workbook. Workbook is a platform that aims to bridge the gap between artisans and their prospective clients.
Also, opportunities are also open for sponsorship by corporate and startup companies in tech. For sponsorship details, email [email protected]
